      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

    Gossman, Ada and a hatch playing video games. Remembered too late that hatches are actually kinda blind so... yeah. Anybody else here watching SGDQ? I love it so much.

    Hey, Ellie. You're blushing.
  3. YES! But does that mean I still get to sell my companions? I'm so glad you're still going to release this game! Won't be able to play it before the Linux release, but I'm sure it's worth the wait. To be honest, I find the reaction towards the Epic-exclusive alpha far too strong. Sure, Epic might be shifty in some way or another, but I'm also pretty sure that Valve wouldn't look any better upon closer inspection: https://www.polygon.com/2017/5/16/15622366/valve-gabe-newell-sales-origin-destructive . The only reason why we feel more comfortable with it is because we're used to it, and probably because fewer people are spreading bad rumours. And, while Steam wants 30% of a game's revenue, Epic only wants 12% (Alas, I only have a german source for this (from a highbrow newpaper, tho): https://www.zeit.de/digital/games/2019-05/computerspiele-fortnite-epic-games-store-gaming). That's 18% more money that can actually be reinvested into the game. Competition is definitely not bad for the market. I think we should voice our concerns, simply because this might eventually drive Epic into becoming a better alternative to Steam. However, yelling 'EpiC iS bAd' over and over again while quietly assuming that Steam is a good guy seems rather unreasonable. I'm sure the devs have thought this decision through, and since they decided to make a contract with Epic despite all the bad press, there must have been some damn good reasons to choose them as a partner.

    Bubbles found an almond on my desk. Enjoy it, lil' dupe.
  5. Dupe-A-Day!

    [LOG BEGINS] In consequence of a huge number of fatal accidents during semi-aquatic environment survival training, we've developed a device which should finally keep the dupes from accidentally killing themsel- oh, wait. Never mind.
  6. Dupe-A-Day!

    Catalina says 'hi' . "Squeak!"
  7. Dupe-A-Day!

    Griftlands dupe.
  8. Dupe-A-Day!

    After gravity had been so mean to Ari last time, they made a plan to finally eat their ice cream in peace. They didn't quite think it through, tho.
  9. Dupe-A-Day!

    Hassan, lost in space. Please don't ask me how the shinebug got there. Tried something new with light and shadow here. I feel like I made a bunch of rookie mistakes that I didn't notice, so I hope this doesn't look too weird.
  10. Dupe-A-Day!

    Ellie and Joshua in cat costumes. I always think of Ellie as someone who talks with their eyes, like, a lot. "I think this is stupid, too, but he's enjoying himself, and he's being so cute, so you better say something nice, or else."
  11. Some of my favourite dupes in a paper boat. This is probably just about as safe as it looks.
  12. Dupe-A-Day!

    Ari got some ice cream.

    Nikola doesn't like his lunch.
  14. I'm well aware of that, that's why I initially decided to dedicate exactly three sentences to this anecdote. You are the one who took this up and turned it into a big issue. Thanks for the free grammar check. The articles you were referring to are citing, not cited. I really hate this, this is nothing but unnecessary. I'm gonna come back when some new lore is being released...
  15. I was actually just hoping that somebody already heard/read about this and had something to contribute. I'm not entirely sure how much this fits, either. We're neither talking about a physician, nor about a woman with a family (at least I'd guess so). However, if the whole 'Let's-colonize-a-planet-duh'-thing was really a rescue mission, and Gravitas Facility was thereby far more than a money-making business, the situation might not be unsimilar to that of a physician, as you deciding to go home early might cause people to die early. This might've caused her to keep pushing herself and everybody else to their limits, instead of, y'know, enjoying that little time they had left. Would you mind telling me where you found those sources...? Abstracts don't directly cite any resources. Never ever. The only indirect 'resource' I can find is that novel (Perri Klass, Other Women's Children). Well, basically you're right about that bias-thingy. However, having your assessment being influenced by your emotions and trying to assess emotions with valid scientific methods as a part of a psychological study are two completely different things. I was able to download the whole paper via an university server. The author reported that things like suicide rates, alcoholism, anxiety etc. pp. have been measured. But I image that this doesn't help you a whole lot if you are a clinical psychiatrist and have to understand your patients' problem based on stuff like some autobiographic information and, well, their emotions. "Don't worry, only xx.x% of women with an economic and social situation similar to yours try to attempt suicide. You'll be fine!" This is where a novel like this seems to be pretty helpful as a first step to develop a deeper understanding. I'm not trying to prove anything here. It's basically impossible, the only thing that can do that are further lore entries. However, there's absolutely nothing scientific about a theorizing thread, so it doesn't really matter, anyway. I'm just having fun~ So, you're absolutely correct if you wanted to say that this is no proof that Amelia is Jackie's middle name. The fact that a novel with a possible namesake exists with a situation that may or may be not applicable to the lore could still be pure coincidence. However, if it isn't, it would totally make my day. For now, it's just a nice little anecdote, as we already know that some names are based on real scientists or scientific theories (Maxwell *cough*, Marie Sklowdoska *cough cough*, Nikola Techna). Amelia could still be Mae... I think? Would that be a plausible nickname? I also pondered Jackie being Mae because of this. At least the personality description would fit, Jackie seems to be filled with determination. However, this admittedly seems a little far-fetched... Oh, and, uhm... at that level of scientific literature, that's completely normal. I'm sorry that I caused some confusion. I usually think a lot more about these things than I write down in the end, because I feel like most people don't care much about large texts. Should I change that...?
  16. Found the artifact texts: Fun fact: Apparently, there's something called "Amelia Stern Syndrome": https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1745922 Makes it even more likely that Amelia is really Jackie's middle name. There's not really much else to be found about this syndrome, though... Also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Pesquet Not sure whether Pesquet is a new employee or not... according to the article, he really played the saxophone. I added the name to my list nonetheless. I also updated my monster-txt. I'm thinking about reactivating my rusty LaTeX-skills and turning that thing into a pdf. It's getting kinda huge and hard to find stuff... Also, numbers from A0-A9 and B1-B8 have been added to the lore entries. I think the lore unlocking system will get an overhaul before the release. Surprisingly, also the lore entries in my category "Old, not used" got numbers, so they might still get implemented, after all. lore_entries.txt
  17. Dupe-A-Day!

    Wanted to draw Stinky with his mop. Why he's able to survive in space w/o a space suit? Must have something to do with his super-secret magic powers.
  18. Found something. #. STRINGS.CODEX.B2_ELLIESBIRTHDAY #. STRINGS.CODEX.B7_FRIENDLYEMAIL Nikola Techna? Nikola Tesla? #. STRINGS.CODEX.PLANETARYECHOES I've been looking for text regarding the new artifacts, but I haven't been able to find anything...
  19. They heard that the ancient guardian has no friends, so they decided to make one for him. Or, maybe they're just trying to sneak past him. Who knows.
  20. Dupe-A-Day!

    Camille in a shirt. After you've been born in a suit that basically acted like a second skin, it sure must be weird to have loose clothes rubbing on your skin with every movement. But I'm sure she'll eventually get used to it.
  21. Tested this once, too, with the very same result. Moleworms, however, were still present.
  22. Never have found any of these. Just searched for keywords from the gamepedia page in the strings file, still nothing. The old entries seem to be gone for good, sorry. :/ I mean, I could copy them from the gamepedia entry... if you still would have some use for these... However, I doubt that they are still relevant for the game's lore.
  23. Finally updated my lore txt file. Added Dupe personality descriptions and SEARCH.LORE messages. Other than that, there shouldn't be anything new (that hasn't already been posted here.) Has anybody found out whether the NOTETOJODI entry has already been implemented? I expected a unique 'new database entry discovered'-message for this, but haven't found anything. lore_entries.txt
  24. Dupe-A-Day!

    I really wanted to draw a dupe with a winter hat. Ellie is sad anyway, I guess she's missing someone? Tested some brushes on a rough doodle. Turns out, using a software meant for illustration actually does something. It's overall kinda dark... but I somehow liked it better that way.
